AND DEVELOPMENT Oakwood College is the outgrowth of the Oakwood Industrial School founded in 1896 by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. After a number of years of successful operation the name was changed to Oakwood Manual Training School. In 1917, two years of college work were offered, and the school was known as Oakwood Junior College. In the spring of 1943, another forward step was taken by the institution when it was advanced to the status of a senior college. Since that time it has been known as Oakwood College. In 1964 Oakwood College became a member of the United Negro College Fund. The institution is owned and operated by the General Con- ference of Seventh-day Adventists as a college for Christian higher education. ACCREDITATION Oakwood College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is approved by the Seventh-day Adventist Board of Regents. OBJECTIVES Oakwood College builds its offerings around the philosophy that "true education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than the preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being. ... It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world, and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come." — Education, p. 13. In harmony with this philosophy of education, the administra- tion and faculty of Oakwood College have defined its objectives as follows: Spiritual: The purpose of the spiritual and religious instruction at Oak- wood College is to reflect fully the image of Jesus Christ through emphasis on the development of character and talent, the nobility of ambition, the keenness of perception with sound judgment; so that the student is prepared to render unselfish service to God and man. Intellectual: Consonant with the divine plan of education, the College purposes to develop within its students certain attitudes and abilities conducive to independent and creative thinking; to further acquaint them with the basic facts and principles of the major fields of General Information 33 knowledge, together with a more intensive concentration in one or more of these fields. The College seeks further to help the student to develop proficiency in the use of the English language; to encourage an unbiased attitude on controversial issues; and to motivate within the student a persistent and continuing intellectual curiosity. Cultural: As an integral part of the total development of the student, the College endeavors to develop in its youth desirable personalities, refined tastes, and correct usage of the social graces which will prepare them for participation in social and recreational activities, and to understand and respect persons of varied backgrounds and experiences. Personal Adjustment: The College seeks to help the student understand himself, to the end that he may make the maximum use of whatever powers he has, both for his own and for the social good. While the student must learn the subjects that are offered in the curriculum, he must also find out about himself and how he may best fit into the social order. Physical: The physical education program of the College attempts to give each student an intelligent understanding of the standards which govern the function and care of the body. It seeks also to establish in the student a consistency in the observance of habits and practices which engender maximum physical vitality and health. Emphasis is placed on the proper use of leisure time, either through some activity worthy of physical development or in some gymnastic enterprise given under supervision. Vocational: Oakwood College endeavors to teach its students the dignity of labor, to train them in practical work which will enable them to cope with life situations, to impart skill and knowledge in certain vocations best suited to the student's interests and aptitudes, and to offer professional and preprofessional courses which will aid the students in their choice of a vocation. VETERAN AND FOREIGN STUDENT TRAINING The Veterans Administration has approved the College for the training of veterans. A Certificate of Eligibility must be submitted to the Registrar's Office at the time of initial registration, in order that the certification of the veteran's enrollment may be made to the Veterans Administration. The College has also been approved by the United States Office of Immigration for the training of foreign students. 34 Oakwood College BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS The College property consists of 980 acres, of which 500 are under cultivation.

At the annual banquet, which is held during the Easter weekend, officers of the Association are elected. STUDENT LIFE Orientation: To help new students of the College to make ade- quate personal adjustment to college life, an orientation program has been developed. During "Freshman Week" special tests are administered. Campus tours, opportunities to meet the faculty mem- bers, student leaders, and to receive instruction regarding the ob- jectives of the College are arranged. Religious Life: At Oakwood, religion is the natural thing. The College Church, the Sabbath School, the Missionary Volunteer So- ciety, the Ministerial Seminar, the student literature evangelism program, the dormitory worship hours, and the many prayer bands afford the students excellent opportunities for the development of self-expression, leadership, and initiative. Convocations, the Lyceum Course: During the school year dis- tinguished guest speakers address the student body at the chapel hour as well as conduct Religious Emphasis weeks. The College Lyceum Course brings to the campus each year several outstanding American artists. In addition to this, many other programs of equal eminence are sponsored by the College. Social Activities: A wholesome program of social activities is planned by the Director of Student Activities in consultation with the Coordinating Council of Campus Organizations composed of Student Life 37 faculty and students. Social programs are sponsored during the year by clubs, classes, and organizations. The students also enjoy the social and cultural life of the faculty members' homes. Extracurricular Activities Participation: In order to ensure satisfactory scholarship, the extent to which students may partici- pate in extracurricular activities is subject to regulation. The recreational activities of the College are designed to serve the wide variety of leisure-time interests of the students. The Col- lege does not engage in off -campus or intercollegiate athletics. Intramural Sports: The College sponsors a program of intra- mural sports in connection with the physical education activities. Health Service: The College Health Service is designed to meet the medical needs of students. Nurses are on active duty during the day and evening and on call for emergencies at night. The College Physician holds regular clinic hours in the Health Office four days a week and is available on call. In case of serious illness or accident, excellent complete hospital care is readily available. Accident In- surance coverage is provided for students each quarter in which they are enrolled. Parents or guardians of students who are seriously ill will be notified immediately. Student Employment: In the operation of its plant, the College offers a limited amount of work to worthy students, and they are expected to give conscientious attention to the work assigned to them. The management will assign students to departments where work is available. Changes to other departments cannot be made merely upon request. When a student is assigned to a department, it is expected that he remain there for the entire school year. In some cases, exceptions to the foregoing are made by the management. Should a student find it necessary to be absent from work, he must immediately make arrangements with his work superintend- ent. In case of illness, he will also inform the health service. Students who must earn a large part of their college expenses will not be permitted to carry as much college work as those stu- dents who are able to devote all of their time to their studies. This is discussed more fully in the section dealing with student finance. Student Organizations: Membership in the departmental clubs is based on academic attainment in regular college work and is considered a distinct honor. The list of student organizations follows: United Student Movement: The United Student Movement of Oakwood College is the major student organization of the College. This organization seeks to promote a more perfect relationship among all sectors of the College community; to enhance the re- 38 Oakwood College ligious, academic, cultural, and social programs of the College; and to emphatically support the aims and objectives of Oakwood College. Each matriculated, regular student of Oakwood College is a member of the United Student Movement. The United Student Movement finances its own program through the payment of individual membership dues. With the help and approval of faculty sponsors, the United Student Movement carries out such programs and student activities as the student body may adopt.

Throughout the school year the curriculum adviser will be available for advice and guidance on academic questions. Although curriculum advisers may be consulted on questions and problems other than academic ones, students are invited to seek counsel from any member of the faculty. Personal problems will be given thoughtful consideration. Members of the faculty deem it a privilege to discuss with the student great principles, concepts, Student Life 39 and ideas in an atmosphere of informality and friendliness. Stu- dents are urged to become personally acquainted with as many members of the faculty as possible. Students having difficulty resolving personal problems or mak- ing important decisions concerning educational or career plans should visit the Center for Student Development and Planning. Personnel trained in test administration and interpretation, guid- ance and counseling are available to give professional assistance. Personal information relating to specific students is held in strictest confidence by the Center and may not be released except at the request of the student (s) involved. GOVERNING STANDARDS It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and women with high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian leadership. The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon the principle that character building is the highest object of education and that a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and godliness, is the objective alike of the student for himself and of the College for him. Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to provide a Christian environment in which students may prepare themselves for service at home and in other lands. In order to maintain this environment certain general rules of conduct apply. Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. It is the responsibility of every student to secure from the Office of Stu- dent Affairs and to read the rules and regulations governing student life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Familiarity with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book will make life at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more enjoyable. A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude toward the community in which he lives. As a citizen of the college community the student must realize that he has been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no right to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules of the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. STUDENT CITIZENSHIP Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering any department of the College is subject to its supervision and jurisdiction from the time of arrival in Hunts ville until his 40 Oakwood College connection is terminated by graduation or by any officially ap- proved withdrawal. The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and general conduct, as well as his scholastic attainments. Listed among the government policies of the College are 12 offenses which are considered to be very serious and may be cause for dismissal or serious disciplinary action on the first offense. Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, the first offense may result in dismissal from school. A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence is detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the campus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing should he return without permission from the Administration. Leave of Absence: Permission for an ordinary leave of absence from the campus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence Dean. Approval must also be obtained from the work superintend- ent. When a leave of absence involves absence from a class, per- mission must be obtained from the Dean of Student Affairs. When the leave of absence takes a student farther than the city of Hunts- ville, it must be approved by the Dean of Student Affairs. Written permission from the parent or guardian for travelling must be on file for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to this rule is granted only to students who are both of legal age and self-supporting. In every case, working students must secure the approval of their work superintendent before presenting their re- quests to their respective deans. Attendance at Religious Services: Oakwood College is emphati- cally a Christian college. Attendance at evening worships, chapel, Friday evening vespers, Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning church service is required. Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an auto- mobile frequently militate against success in college, students are not encouraged to bring automobiles with them to the College unless absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring automo- biles to the College, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles owned by other individuals. All students, whether living in residence halls or in the com- munity, who own or operate any type of motor vehicle (car, motor- cycle, scooter, etc.) must register it with the Office of Security at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 24 hours of his arrival should he arrive after registration has been concluded or within 24 hours of its procurement within any quarter of the school year. Owners must have a valid operator's license and must Admission Standards 41 show proof of liability insurance (including medical coverage) at the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic enforce- ment personnel. RESIDENCE HALLS All unmarried students are required to live in one of the College residence halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless they live with parents or with other close relatives in the City of Huntsville. When campus housing is overcrowded, students age 23 and over may apply to the Administrative Council for permission to live in the community. Under special circumstances, students under age 23 also may apply to the Administrative Council for permission to live off campus in an officially approved home. Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a quarter. Failure to secure official approval to reside in the com- munity or to withdraw from a college residence hall when directed to do so will invalidate the registration of a student. Students who have received approval for off campus living may be called into the College residence halls at any time the administration deems neces- sary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space in the residence halls. Dormitory Supervision: Each dormitory is under the direction of a Residence Dean. The Residence Deans have general supervision of the well-being of the students under their charge. APARTMENTS The College owns thirty units of one- and two-bedroom apart- ments which are available for married students. These apartments rent for reasonable amounts. There are also approved apartments in the community, furnished and unfurnished, in which married students may live. For information write the Business Manager. ADMISSION STANDARDS The educational facilities of Oakwood College are available to young men and women of good moral character who are grad- uates of accredited schools and who, in the judgment of the Admissions Committee, are able to do college work.

(See Housing) Oakwood College welcomes applications from young people regardless of race, religion, or national origin whose prin- ciples and interests are in harmony with the ideals and traditions of the College as expressed in its objectives and policies. To qualify, applicants must give evidence of Christian character, intelligence, health, and a desire to pursue the program outlined in this bulletin and the student handbook. Although religious affiliation is not a requirement for admission, all students are expected to live by the policies and standards of the College as a church-related in- stitution. Oakwood College reserves the right to deny admission to any student who in the judgment of the Committee on Admis- sions may not benefit from the total program of the College or whose presence or conduct may be detrimental to that program. WHEN TO APPLY OR REAPPLY New students are urged to submit applications not later than the last term of the senior year of high school. Applications sub- mitted at the beginning of the senior year will sometimes enable the College to suggest ways of strengthening the student's prepara- tion. Because of the difficulty sometimes encountered during the summer months in obtaining necessary transcripts, test scores, and recommendations, more time will be necessary for processing late applications. Students in residence may submit re-applications without charge until the end of the Spring quarter. Thereafter the regular application fee of $5 will be required until July 31, after which the fee becomes $10. What to Bring: Every student who rooms in the school home should bring his own bedding — four sheets, four pillowcases, a pil- low, two bedspreads, and blankets or comforters — also towels, dres- ser scarfs, cover for study table, laundry bag, pictures, and other furnishings he may want to make his room pleasant and homelike. Admission Standards 43 For details on the use of electrical appliances, see Student Handbook, p. 19.

If ACT or SAT scores are not available, students may be pro- visionally admitted without test scores, but will be required to take the ACT during Freshman Orientation. The Nelson Denny test is given to all new freshmen for reading placement. Applicants who do not meet the requirements for regular admission are given in- dividual consideration and may be admitted as special students or on academic probation (See section on academic probation, page 57). To be considered for admission, the student must also have a composite average of at least "C" in the total secondary school courses taken in English, mathematics, science, social science, and foreign language. While the College does not recommend specific subjects for admission, the following minimum preparation, with quality per- formance in evidence is required: A minimum of three units of English as a preparation to reading, writing, and speaking the English language effec- tively and accurately. Two or more units of mathematics including algebra — algebra and geometry preferred. For those wishing to major in chemistry, mathematics, or physics, or take professional work in engineering, medicine and certain other pre-professional courses, the second unit should be geometry. Students wanting to take the above curricula are advised to include as much mathematics as possible in the secondary program. Two units of science — laboratory experience required in at least one unit. The two units must be selected from biology, chemistry, or physics for those wishing to major in science, mathematics, or nursing, or take pre-professional work in engineering, medicine, dentistry or other medical arts curricula.

Students admitted with fewer than two units of religion and two units of one foreign language will be required to complete 44 Oakwood College additional courses in these areas beyond the general education requirements for the baccalaureate degrees. (An exception to the policy involving foreign language study may be noted in certain curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.) ADMISSION TO ADVANCED PLACEMENT FOR FRESHMEN Oakwood College will consider requests for advanced place- ment of freshmen from any secondary school graduate who believes that he qualifies for such status. Final decisions on all awards of credit, or advanced placement, are made by the Academic Policies Committee on the merits of each individual case. Petition should be made to the Dean of the College for recommendation to the committee. To be considered eligible for advanced placement, the student should have: 1. A grade-point average of at least 3.0 on the four-point scale in secondary courses other than art, music, physical educa- tion, driver training, and vocational courses. 2.

Such credit is evaluated in terms of degree requirements on the same basis as transfer credit. Students in high schools who plan to attend Oakwood College and who demonstrate proficiency in a field of study by having passed one or more of the Advanced Placement examinations will be given credit for college courses where proficiency has been ascertained. Each academic department of the College recognizes the place- ment value of these examinations and has designated the specific courses which may be credited to the student's record, when a student presents evidence of having passed the examination. ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS Students wishing to transfer to Oakwood College from another college or university must follow the same application procedure as other students. The college from which the student is trans- ferring should forward to the Registrar an official transcript and a statement of honorable dismissal.

Academic Policies 51 REGISTRATION For all students, new and returning alike, registration includes counseling, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are expected to register on the registration date as announced in the Bulletin. A registration envelope with full information on pro- cedures will be issued at the Registrar's Office to the student for- mally accepted. Students are not officially registered for a course until the instructor has received an approved class card. All students, both old and new, are expected to register at the beginning of each quarter at the time designated by the College. All students en- rolled in the College must pre-register for each quarter during the periods designated in the College Bulletin. Any student who fails to pre-register will be subject to a cash fine of $10.00. LATE REGISTRATION Permission to register late must be obtained from the Academic Dean. Students failing to register during the scheduled registration periods will be assessed a late registration fee of ten dollars the first day and two dollars for each additional day. Class periods missed because of late registration will be counted as absences from the class. Ordinarily, no student will be allowed to register after the designated registration days have passed. All classwork missed must be made up to the teacher's satisfaction. Permission to register late should ordinarily be obtained before registration day. In any case the Dean must be presented satis- factory evidence to indicate that it was not possible for the student to register on the designated date. CHANGE IN REGISTRATION After a student's registration has been completed, he may not add a course or drop a course or change a section without the ap- proval of the Adviser, the Instructor, the Registrar, and the Dean of Academic Affairs. This applies to all courses, including those taken on an audit basis. A student should be very careful in his registration procedure to be sure that he registers for the courses that he needs and that he should take. A student may change the program of studies for which he has registered upon the approval of the Academic Ad- viser, the Registrar, and the Dean of Academic Affairs. A charge of five dollars ($5.00) will be made for each such change except when made necessary by cancellation of scheduled classes or an officially approved change of schedule time which makes it impossible for the student to take the course because of a conflict with another course. WITHDRAWALS Students withdrawing from college or individual courses must file an official drop voucher with the Records Office. Failure to do 52 Oakwood College so will result in the recording of unsatisfactory withdrawal (WF) on the student's permanent record. During the first six weeks of any quarter the student may withdraw from a course and receive a W. Withdrawals after this time will result in the recording of a WF unless exception is granted by the Academic Dean. With- drawals must be approved by the Instructor, the Adviser, the Reg- istrar, and the Academic Dean. The deadline for class withdrawal for the summer session is listed in the Academic Calendar. With- drawals are not permitted during the last two weeks of a quarter. Vouchers become effective as of the date on which they are returned to the Registrar's Office. PRE-EXAMINATION WEEK Pre-examination Week is the week that precedes the final quar- ter examinations. During this week, no off-campus field trips, major examinations or extracurricular activities requiring student partici- pation may be scheduled. This week should enable students to de- vote full time to the completion of course projects and to prepare for final examinations. EXAMINATIONS Finals. All students must take the final examination in each course at the time listed in the official time schedule or no credit will be granted for the course. Exceptions may be made only by the Dean of the College. Should the examination schedule require a student to complete four examinations in one day, arrangements may be made with the dean to complete one of the examinations at another time. SPECIAL EXAMS A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having compe- tency or exposure in a certain area covered by a required course may meet an academic requirement by passing a waiver examina- tion, an examination for credit, or the CLEP examination. Each of these examinations should be equal in scope and difficulty to a final examination in the course. Not more than forty-eight (48) hours of the total credit hours required for graduation may be earned by the examination for credit and/or the CLEP subject examination. The deadline for seniors challenging a course by examination is the mid-term of the Winter Quarter. The various departments concerned will decide what subjects are open for examination for credit. The student must obtain a score on any such examination which would equate with a "C" grade in the course in order to be eligible for credit or waiver. A student may not take a more advanced course in a given area while waiting for permission from the Academic Policies Com- mittee to sit for a lower level course. No credit will be recorded until Academic Policies 53 the student has earned at least twelve (12) hours at Oakwood with a minimum GPA of 2.00. Grades below "D" may not be changed by these examinations. A student may not take a proficiency examination for credit for the same course more than once. Examination for Waiver. Students who present satisfactory evidence of having competence in an area covered by a required course may apply to the Academic Policies Committee. After being given approval by the Committee and having paid $25.00 to the Accounting Office as an examination fee (non-refundable) the student will be administered the examination. If he earns a satis- factory score on the examination, the required course may be waived and he will be allowed to substitute some other course in its place. Hour credit toward graduation cannot be earned by this examination. Examination for Credit. If the student can present satisfactory evidence of a background of formal study or competency in any area of the curriculum, he may be permitted by the Academic Poli- cies Committee to sit for a comprehensive examination covering the requirements for any such course taught at Oakwood and receive hour credit toward graduation. Upon approval of the Committee, the student will pay to the Accounting Office the tuition based on $54.00 per hour of credit offered by the course. This fee is not refundable. The grade earned on the examination will be recorded. CLEP — College Level Examination Program. Oakwood Col- lege grants the appropriate credit for each subject exam passed in this program by the College Entrance Examination Board. The fol- lowing statements summarize the program: 1. Only first-year residence students (new students) — fresh- men, sophomores, and juniors — may earn credit by CLEP SUBJECT EXAMINATION. Examinations must be taken during the first quarter of the school year. 2. The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a student may apply toward graduation is forty-eight (48) quarter hours. 3. In each major the maximum number of CLEP SUBJECT EXAMINATION credits a student may earn is determined by the major department. 4. In the case of the core requirements, the Academic Policies Committee will determine which courses can be taken by the CLEP EXAMINATION and how much credit a student may earn from the basic core requirements without over- lapping in the subject area. 5. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before credit can be granted. 54 Oakwood College 6. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course credit, but no letter grade shall be assigned or quality points considered. 7. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may not repeat the course for which credit was given by exam- ination for a grade. 8. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before entering Oakwood College must have the approval of the Office of the Registrar before the test is taken. 9.

Academic Policies 55 COURSE EXEMPTION A student may be granted exemption from certain required courses provided he fulfills one or the other of the two following requirements: 1 . Presentation of credit in courses substantially equivalent in purpose, scope, context, and credit value to the required course from which exemption is requested. 2. Successful passing of a competence examination adminis- tered by the department concerned. The granting of exemption does not involve the bestowal of credit, neither does it reduce the total number of hours to be earned for a degree. Its only effect is to increase the number of elective hours which the student may offer as part of his degree program. GRADES AND REPORTS Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or guardians at the end of each quarter provided the student's account is in order. GRADING SYSTEM Only quarter grades are recorded on the student's permanent record in the college. The following system of grading and grade point values is used. Grade Points Grade Per Hour A, A— (superior) 4 B + ,B, B— (above average) 3 C + ,C, C— (average) 2 D+,D, D- (below average) 1 F, FA (failure, failure due to absences) I (incomplete) W (withdrew) WF (withdrew failing) AU (audit) NC (noncredit) GRADE-POINT AVERAGE The grade-point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed by totaling the grade points earned in all courses attempted and dividing by the total hours attempted. Credits for which an F or WF are received are included in calculating the grade-point aver- age. The symbols WP, AU and NC are disregarded in computing the grade-point average. Incompletes are not included in the G.P.A. until after the time specified for removal. 56 Oakwood College PASS-OR-FAIL COURSES Students may take up to 12 quarter hours, in addition to Choir and required P. E. courses, to be applied toward graduation on a pass-or-fail basis. This option will be applicable to all courses except those in the student's major, minor, cognate courses or those that apply toward a teaching credential. Sophomores, juniors, and sen- iors having a minimum grade point average of 2.50 may take ad- vantage of this option. Not more than one such course per quarter should be taken. A grade of "P" will be equivalent to a grade of "C" or better; and a grade of "U" will be given in place of a "D" or "F." These grades will have no effect on the student's G.P.A. No credit will be given for a course if a student receives a "U" grade in it. If the student receives a "P," he will receive the same amount of credit as if he had taken the course on a regular basis. Teachers should report the actual letter grade to the Registrar's Office, where it will be recorded on the following basis: A, B, C — Pass or "P"; D, F — Unsatisfactory or "U." Deadline for taking a course on this basis is one week after the beginning of the quarter. DEAN'S LIST Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.5, who carry a minimum of 15 quarter hours with no grade below a B, and no incompletes, are eligible for membership on the dean's list. HONOR ROLL Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours and who maintain a grade point average of 3.00, or above, during a given quarter with no grade below a "C" shall be considered HONOR STUDENTS for the quarter. HONORS CONVOCATION To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scho- lastic achievement, loyalty to College standards, and exemplary citizenship, the College conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be eligible for participation the student must have a cumulative grade point average of not less than 3.25 and a minimum of 24 hours earned at Oakwood College. GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION Students are graduated with honors under the following con- ditions: Honorable Mention. A student must have a grade point aver- age of 3.0. Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3.25. Magna Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- age of 3.50. Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- age of 3.75, or above. Academic Policies 57 INCOMPLETE WORK I — indicates that a student's work is incomplete for the quarter because of illness or other unavoidable circumstances. An "I" will not be recorded for course work which is below passing, or for the inability of the student to submit required work as scheduled be- cause of negligence. "I" may be given by the instructor, subject to approval by the Dean of the college. Without the Dean's endorse- ment the grade "/" may not be accepted by the Registrar. When an "I" is received, it may be removed upon completion of the work specified by the instructor and the reporting of the final grade to the Registrar within the first six weeks of the next quarter. Stu- dents whose make-up work is of such a nature that it may require additional time, may, with approval of the instructor, request ad- vance permission from the Academic Policies Committee for an extension of time. The time limit is effective even though the student is not enrolled the following quarter. The incomplete is permanently changed to an "F" if not removed within the pre- scribed time. All incompletes should be removed before a student leaves campus on organizational tours (band, choir, etc.) involving school time. ACADEMIC PROBATION New students whose grade point average is less than 2.0 and greater than 1.5 are admitted on academic probation and, like all students on academic probation, MUST TAKE PART IN "SIP" (Scholarship Improvement Program) by reporting weekly to the INNER COLLEGE OFFICE to engage in the study program planned for them by the Director. All probationary students who do not cooperate with and take active part in the INNER COL- LEGE program will be dropped for poor scholarship. A student so dropped will not be considered for readmission until the beginning of the following academic year. All students on academic probation who have not attained the required minimum grade point average of 2.0 by the end of the third quarter may be readmitted to the College at the discretion of the Admissions Committee in counsel with the Academic Policies Committee. If readmitted, the student must attain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 at the end of the sixth quarter. Any student who has been in residence at Oakwood for six quarters and whose overall grade point average is below 2.0 may expect to be dropped. Students who have been dropped a second time for poor schol- arship may not apply for readmission within one calendar year from the date of their dismissal. A student whose grades are ex- tremely poor (1.0 or below) may be requested to withdraw from the College at any time regardless of the provisions stated above. 58 Oakwood College A student on probation is denied permission to participate in any public event sponsored by the College; he must not represent the College in any official capacity or hold office in any student organization. The maximum load for a student on academic probation is fourteen hours. All students on academic probation will be required to take remedial courses in appropriate areas of study or participate in a program of remediation. INNER COLLEGE Inner College is an academic support department which exists for the purpose of helping students who need assistance in any academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer-tutoring and academic advisement under the supervision of a full-time counselor- coordinator. The center also maintains a wide variety of media materials and individualized study guides. The student (peer) tutors are generally upperclassmen recommended by the various depart- ments. The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall and is open during the day and evening hours in order to accom- modate all students desiring such assistance. REPEATED COURSES Occasionally students express an interest in repeating a course if the earned grade cannot apply toward graduation or for other reasons. A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of "C" only by permission of the Academic Policies Committee. A student who has earned a grade of "D" in a major, minor, cognate, or in other required courses may, on the advice of his major professor, repeat the course or take another course in the same area, if it is recommended. In either case, the professor expresses his desire in writing. The student who repeats a course is required to register in the regular way, repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory requirements and other required activities. If a student repeats a course, he may receive whatever grade he earns, but he may not repeat the course for credit more than once. Each time a course is taken the student's record will show the hours for which he registered and the grade points earned. When a student is granted permission to repeat a course in which a failing grade has previously been recorded, his GPA will be computed on the basis of the final grade earned. However, both grades will appear on his transcript. Academic Policies 59 AUDITING COURSES Students may audit courses only by permission of the Aca- demic Dean and the instructor concerned. Those who are interested in such courses should register at the time of the regular registration. No credit is given for a course audited. The tuition charged is one half the regular charge for credit. Laboratory courses may not be audited. A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit basis after the first week of the course. CORRESPONDENCE No student shall take work by correspondence or enroll in another institution of higher learning while registered at Oakwood College without permission from the Academic Policies Committee. CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with the Home Study Institute, which is the Extension Division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of corre- spondence work or extension work credit may apply toward a baccalaureate degree program and twelve hours toward a two-year terminal program. Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence or extension work while in residence only if the required course is not obtainable at the college. It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or transient work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the of- ficial transcript for the work completed must be in the Registrar's Office before April 15. All correspondence or transient work, whether taken while in residence or during the summer, must be approved in advance by the Academic Policies Committee and Registrar respectively. Ap- propriate forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. Correspondence and transient credit with a "D" grade is un- acceptable.. A course taken in residence in which the student earned a "D" or an "F" may not be repeated by correspondence. No correspondence credit will be entered upon the student's record until he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in residence with an average of at least "C." In no case may more than 17 hours of combined residence, correspondence and/or transient work be carried in a quarter with- out the approval of the Academic Policies Committee. 60 Oakwood College TRANSCRIPTS Each student whose account is paid in full is entitled to a transcript of credits. The first transcript will be issued without cost; all additional transcripts are issued upon payment of $1.00 per transcript. If the student is in arrears in payments of National Defense Loans and/or School Loans, the amount in arrears must be paid before a transcript will be released. ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, worships, and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack of attendance, therefore, implies lack of co-operation with the re- quirements of the College. CLASS ABSENCES Oakwood College operates under the following principles: It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the Col- lege policies concerning attendance and to make his interpretations known to his students at the beginning of each course. Every instructor has the right to count class participation including at- tendance in calculating the term grade. It is the responsibility of the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself in- formed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examina- tions at the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when they are due. Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory appointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any reason the total number of absences is double the number of credit hours of the course per quarter, credit may, at the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade of "FA" be recorded. Absences are counted from the first official day of classes. Three tardinesses are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more than ten (10) minutes is considered an absence. Absences immediately preceding or following a vacation, school picnic, or field day are counted double. Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from classes or relieve the student of required class work. The student, however, must make arrangements with the teacher for every anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at least 48 hours before the beginning of such anticipated schedules. All make-up work, involving examinations and other class require- ments, must be made up within seven (7) days after the absence is incurred. ASSEMBLY ABSENCES All registered students (on and off campus) are required to attend chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from Academic Policies 61 Assembly without penalty each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be made for each unexcused absence in excess of two. Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in writing to the Registrar's Office before the very next Assembly. Failure to do this will automatically result in an unexcused absence. Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case of unavoidable work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a permanent excuse for a quarter, a written request, signed by the work supervisor, must be submitted to the Registrar's Office no later than two weeks after the beginning of each quarter. ATTENDANCE AT RELIGIOUS SERVICES Seventh- day Adventists believe that the influence of religious services is an important factor in attaining Christian character. Therefore, attendance at worship services in the dormitories and at all Friday evening, Sabbath School, and church services is required of the students. ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS Grade reports are issued at the close of each quarter. Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for correctness as to the courses recorded, credits, and grades. Any corrections needed must be taken care of within one week. No change will be made in the permanent record after two weeks from the issue of the grade report. ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS During the Spring of his Junior year, but no later than the fall of the senior year, a student is required to take a proficiency test in English. This test is administered as scheduled in the catalog once every quarter except Summer. If a student fails to pass the test, he is required to enroll for EN 250, a two-hour course in English funda- mentals, and to pass this in order to qualify for graduation. To be eligible for participation in Senior Presentation, he must have passed the test, have taken English Fundamentals, or be currently enrolled in it. GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION All graduating seniors are required to take both the aptitude and advanced sections of the Graduate Record Examination, except majors in Theology, Secretarial Science, Home Economics, Busi- ness Education and Business Administration, who will be expected to take the aptitude section. The Medical College Admissions Test, the Dental Aptitude Test, the Law School Admissions Test, the National Teachers' Examination, and the Admission Test for Grad- uate Study in Business are accepted as substitutes for the Graduate Record Examination. ■I 62 Oakwood College STANDARDS FOR GRADUATION, DEGREES, AND CERTIFICATES (B.A. and B.S.)

It is designed to give the student who so desires an opportunity to choose a broad, interdisciplinary program of studies. The B.G.S. degree program, with its smaller Core Curricu- lum requirements, provides varied opportunities for students to cross departmental lines in obtaining the kind of education that would best prepare them for future study of hybrid disciplines. The following are the requirements of the B.G.S. degree program: 1. A Core Curriculum of 48 QUARTER HOURS Behavioral and Social Sciences ~ 12 hours One course must be in History Humanities 12 hours EN 101-102-103 Natural Sciences -... 12 hours One course must be in Mathematics Religion „ 12 hours RE 101-102 or RE 111 2. Instead of a major and a minor, the student will pursue concentrations in at least three disciplines, with at least 16 upper division hours in each. A con- centration in this context is defined as a unified, departmental area of study consisting of a minimum of 36 hours but without any specific course or cognate requirements. 3. The satisfactory completion of at least 90 QUARTER HOURS at the junior and senior levels in any fields with no grade below a "C". Not more than 30 of the 90 upper level hours or 60 of the 192 quarter hours would be accepted from any one department. 4. To be admitted to the program, students must have completed the core curriculum and have a grade point average of at least 2.25. 5.

Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most law schools, it is recommended that a student elect a major field of con- centration not later than the beginning of the second year. Majors and minors in the fields of business administration, history, English, behavioral science and political science are generally preferred, although other majors may be acceptable. Electives in human physiology and anatomy and in mathematics are quite helpful. The booklet, Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements, gives detailed information concerning a desirable academic back- ground for the study of law. Interested students who desire a copy of this booklet should write to the following address: Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar American Bar Association 1155 East Sixtieth Street Chicago, Illinois 60600 PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL Students preparing for medicine should be conversant with the requirements of the medical college to which they plan to apply. They should be careful to include all required courses in their program of study. Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most medi- cal schools, it is recommended that the student elect a major field of specialization not later than the beginning of the second year. In- asmuch as training in scientific thinking is an invaluable asset to the study of medicine, it is recommended that the student major either in biology or chemistry; however, the choice is left to the student. For recommendation to a medical school, a student should: a. Maintain a commendable record of conduct and char- acter. b.

Prior approval by Department Chairman. 130 Oakwood College Department of MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICS Professor: Thompson Assistant Professors: Blake (Head), Dobbins Instructor: Nichols MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) The specific objectives of this department are in agreement with the general objectives of the college. Mathematics may be classified according to two general categories, pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is very abstract, and proof (in the sense of a deductive system) is its most important concern. On the other hand, applied mathematics has arisen out of attempts to solve problems in the natural sciences and, in particular, the physical sciences. This department proposes to present these two points of view as a com- bined and unified whole. The department further proposes to develop an appreciation by the student of the fact that the One who created and upholds the universe also made the integers and gave man the mental power and the will to develop the rest of what is called mathematics. Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor in Education, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. Departments of Instruction 131 Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of the following subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administra- tion. French or German must be selected to fulfill the foreign language requirement. No grade below "C" may apply on a major or minor.

Dormer, C. Dormer, Johnson, Payton, White An associate in science degree nursing curriculum is offered to selected men and women students. The curriculum, approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing, is composed of general education courses and nursing courses. The program may be completed in seven quarters. Upon completion of the program, the student will be awarded an Associate in Science de- gree and will be eligible to write the state board test pool examina- tions for licensure as a registered nurse. Graduates will be prepared to serve in staff nurse positions and provide care that is common, recurring and immediate in a variety of settings. One class is admitted to the nursing program each year in the Fall quarter. Students wishing to take part of their general educa- tion courses before taking their nursing courses may do so. The general education courses are the regularly constituted courses of the college, and are taken with other college students. In addition to regular college entrance requirements, prospec- tive nursing students must: 1 . Have credit for all the prerequisite secondary courses listed on page 69. Departments of Instruction 143 2. Have an overall GPA above 2.5. 3. Send to admission office standard scores for ACT or SAT tests. 4. Have a physical examination at the beginning of each school year and offer evidence of good physical and mental health. Students will be notified of acceptance into the Nursing Pro- gram. Students seeking admission by transfer will be considered ac- cording to Oakwood College's policy on the admission of transfer students. All students must be in residence for two quarters of the program. Nursing students must maintain the following standards if they are to remain in the program: 1. Maintain an overall GPA of 2.00. 2. Attain a grade of "C" in Growth and Development, and in each science and nursing course. Students must demonstrate safe clinical laboratory perform- ance as defined by written criteria available in the Nursing Depart- ment Office. Failure in either theoretical or clinical laboratory per- formance will require repetition of both parts of the course. Whenever a student does not maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 in the program, he will be dropped from the nursing courses until he has demonstrated the ability to maintain a 2.00 average in his general education courses. The nursing faculty may then approve re-entry into the program. Through a planned system of advisement, a program is planned to meet individual needs of students. Faculty advisors will counsel students on transferable credits and requirements for aca- demic mobility. The student who plans to progress to a baccalaureate degree program in nursing should consult the bulletin of the school of his choice. A year of college chemistry is usually required.

INDEPENDENT STUDY | -4 146 Oakwood College Department of RELIGION AND THEOLOGY Professors: Reaves, Richards (Head), Rogers, Warren Associate Professor: Melancon Assistant Professor: Pitt Instructors: Butler, Lavender Lecturer: Powell RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) The sub-areas of this division are three, namely: (1) RELI- GION, (2) THEOLOGY, and (3) BIBLICAL LANGUAGES. The RELIGION major follows a tailored course of study to prepare for Bible Worker Instructorship, Classroom Teaching (Ele- mentary, Secondary, and Higher Education levels), Literature Ministry, Medical Ministry, Foreign Missions, and Laymen Leader- ship. THEOLOGY is for the major who looks to the Pastoral, Evan- gelistic ministries (with further ministerial training at the SDA Theological Seminary of Andrews University), and to the Military Chaplaincy. BIBLICAL LANGUAGES as an area offers a minor which includes Greek and Hebrew. Because of the large number of persons preparing for the pastoral/evangelistic ministry and the variety of new areas within the church for religious services, IT IS STRONGLY RECOM- MENDED THAT EVERY STUDENT IN THEOLOGY HAVE ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) MAJOR in which case no MINOR is required. Such a student also takes a shorter list of "COGNATE" classes. Departments of Instruction 147 The entire mosaic of courses in this division is designed to develop within the student a deep appreciation for the importance of the Bible in determining the true philosophy of life, to encourage the application of the teachings of Jesus Christ to the problems of our day, and to provide training for students who desire to serve the church and humanity. A two-year BIBLE WORKER INSTRUCTOR course for which the student receives an Associate Degree Diploma is described in the present Bulletin on page 139 under the heading ASSOCIATE IN ARTS DEGREE IN BIBLE WORKER INSTRUCTORSHIP. The person who is studying for the four-year BACHELOR OF ARTS Degree must be certain to fulfill the following curriculum requirements for graduation: 1. Courses in the MAJOR and required COGNATES. 2. Courses in the BASIC REQUIREMENTS or GENERAL EDUCATION. 3. Courses in the MINOR. 4. No grade below "C" may apply toward the major or minor.

When payment is made by personal check, allow four to six weeks before a cash withdrawal can be made. 4. No cash withdrawals will be given on college sponsored discounts or student labor credit. STUDENT BANK The Business Office offers a deposit banking service for the convenience of students. Financial sponsors should provide the students with a regular monthly allowance so that personal items may be purchased by the student. REMITTANCE PAYMENT OF REGISTRATION FEES SHOULD BE MADE IN THE FORM OF: BANK DRAFTS, MONEY ORDERS, CASHIER'S CHECKS, CERTIFIED PERSONAL CHECKS OR CASH. MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO OAKWOOD COL- LEGE. Send payments directly to Business Office and indicate the name of students to receive credit. A check handling fee of $5.00 will be charged for checks returned by Bank for insufficient funds, 156 Oakwood College and the guardian will be notified to send a Cashier's Check, Money Order, or Bank Draft for payment of registration fees, within seven days after notice. MARRIED STUDENTS HOUSING The College has a limited number of one and two bedroom apartments for married students. A stove and refrigerator are pro- vided but the student is expected to provide his furnishings and pay the monthly utility bills. The charges per month are: One-Bedroom Apartment $60.00 Two-Bedroom Apartment 70.00 Write the Business Manager for reservations on campus or information for community housing. HOUSING DEPOSITS Before registration, all students living in the College residence halls are required to pay a room deposit of $50.00. Married students residing in College apartment units are required to pay a deposit of $60.00. If this is not paid before the day of registration, the deposit will be added to the entrance fee. This deposit is held in trust until the student vacates his room or apartment, leaves it in good condi- tion and turns the keys in. Upon receipt of a satisfactory inspection report, the Business Office will issue a check for the deposit to the student within three weeks after the close of school. Should the room or apartment be left untidy or damaged, the deposit will be forfeited. In addition, the housing deposit will be regarded as security against damage to institutional property throughout the course of the school year. The cost of any arrangements necessary to correct the misuse or abuse of College property and equipment on the part of a student will be charged to that student and the amount will be deducted from the housing deposit. Excessive abuse, the correction of which requires the use of the entire deposit before the end of the school year will necessitate a new cash deposit before the student will be permitted to register the following quarter. In cases where the abuse is judged to be a chronic characteristic of the student, he may be asked to give up his quarters and withdraw from the residence hall. This of course will jeopardize the student's continued matriculation at the College. MUSIC CHARGES Students who register for music lessons are expected to con- tinue taking lessons throughout the quarter. No refund is made if lessons are dropped after the second lesson of any quarter for Financial Information 157 reasons other than prolonged illness or withdrawal from school. Students who drop within the first week will be charged the single lesson rate of $6.00 per lesson. Students are entitled to take, but may not receive a grade for less than a minimum of nine lessons. Lessons lost because of the student's irregularity in at- tendance may not be made up. Students who major or minor in music will be charged the regular tuition rates. Students taking music without credit should pay the following: 9 - half hour lessons $50.00 per quarter. Band fee per quarter — $10.00 INCIDENTAL FEES (NO REFUND) Application Fee (Send Money Order) $ 5.00 Application Fee After July 31 10.00 Auto Registration 5.00 Band 10.00 Change of Program 5.00 Diploma 5.00 Entrance Exams 5.00 Examination for Waiver 25.00 Examination for Credit ($10.00 per hour) Graduation Fee - 30.00 Graduation in Absentia 20.00 Laboratory (Breakage, up to) 10.00 Late Registration 10.00 Nursing Laboratory 25.00 Nursing Uniform (Women) 60.00 Nursing Uniform (Men) 45.00 Nursing Transportation 75.00 Traffic Violations (See Traffic Regulations) Removal of Incompletes (each) 2.00 Room Deposits - Residence Halls 50.00 Room Deposits - Apartments 60.00 Health Service Transportation (per trip) 3.00 Return Check Handling Fee (per check) 2.00 Student Teacher Transportation 50.00 Transcript of Credits 2.00 158 Oakwood College FAMILY DISCOUNTS A discount of 10% of tuition only will be allowed to families supporting more than one member of the family enrolled at this College.

Identification Card — The student must return his ID Card and/or room checkout voucher to the Student Aid and Finance Office to establish eligibility for refund. REFUNDS Ordinarily, the balance of an account is refunded four (4) weeks from the date the ID Card is returned to the Student Aid and Finance Office.

It is recommended that all stu- Financial Information 159 dents arrange for proper insurance coverage for their personal property. SICK AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE All students registered at Oakwood College are covered by Student Health Insurance. The details of this coverage are con- tained in the folder obtainable from the College Health Service. STUDENT FINANCIAL AID Parents have an obligation to pay for the education of their children. They are expected to continue to provide, as well as they are able, the basic essentials of life whether the student lives at home or on a college campus. A student should provide a reasonable part of the total amount required to meet college expenses by accepting employment. Be- lieving in the inspired words that "systematic labor should consti- tute a part of the education of youth" (E. G. White) the college provides many on-campus jobs for students. The Primary purpose of the Financial Aid Program is to provide assistance to students who, without such aid, would be unable to attend college. In selecting students to receive financial assistance, the college will also place emphasis upon academic achievement and character. Students accepted for enrollment at Oakwood College may apply for Financial Aid through the following programs: WORK SCHOLARSHIPS The College makes provision for self-assistance for students by offering work scholarships. Students' work records are filed by the employer showing the employer's evaluation of the student's work habits covering his attendance, dependability, cooperation, skill and speed. Work may be assigned in the service departments, the ad- ministrative offices, and in the industries of the College. The in- dustries are operated by the College to provide work for the stu- dents. These industries do business with customers that require daily schedules. They must have a uniform working force. Stu- dents assigned to these industries must continue their work sched- ules to the end of the term. Any student who drops his work schedule without making proper arrangements may be dropped from class attendance until such arrangements are made, and his account becomes immediately payable in cash. To the best of its ability, the College makes an effort to provide students with jobs; however, it cannot guarantee work to a student even though his application may have been accepted on a plan calling for an approximate number of hours of work per week. Some students choose class schedules with classes so scattered that 160 Oakwood College a reasonable work program is impossible. Some are physically or emotionally unable to work. Others, for various reasons, fail to meet work assignments. It is the responsibility of the student to render acceptable service to his employer in order to retain a job. Work assignments are retained on the basis of scholarship, dependability, and conduct. Work scholarships are not payable in cash and students are advised not to work more than the assigned hours without prior approval from the Finance Officer. Should a work scholarship credit remain on the account, the money may be transferred to an immediate relative's account, within two years; after that time, the scholarship will revert to the college's Student Labor Account. VETERANS Oakwood College is approved by the Veterans' Administration as an accredited training institution. Those who qualify for edu- cational benefits should contact the nearest Veterans Administra- tion Office. A certificate of eligibility will be issued by the Veterans Administration. LITERATURE EVANGELIST SCHOLARSHIPS The College participates in the Seventh-day Adventist Student Colporteur Scholarship Program. Information concerning this pro- gram may be obtained from the Local Conference Publishing De- partment, your minister, or the Coordinator of Literature Industry. Students having colporteur scholarships must make regular pay- ments on or before the date of registration or have their publishing houses send us a list of confirmation on the scholarships. This should be done before the day of registration. DEFERRED PAYMENT OF EDUCATIONAL COST For those parents and students who prefer to pay their educa- tional expenses in convenient monthly installments at low interest rates, the following plans are offered: Write for application to one of the following: The Tuition Plan, Inc. Concord, New Hampshire 03301 Pickett and Hatcher Education Fund P.O. Box 2128 Columbus, Georgia 31902 Write to the Director of Student Finance for further information. STATE GUARANTEED LOANS The Guaranteed Loan Program has one purpose: to provide the means for the student to borrow money for college at low inter- Financial Information 161 est cost, with the Federal Government paying part of the interest for qualified students. Any student who is enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an accredited public or private nonprofit college or university is eligible to apply for a loan for his educational expenses. HIGH SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN AND SALUTATORIAN This College grants $500 scholarships to high school valedicto- rians and $450 to salutatorians. In addition to the above, students who are not valedictorians or salutatorians, but who have attained a minimum grade point average of 3.50 are eligible to receive a $400 scholarship. To receive this award the applicant must send to the Registrar's Office of the College a letter from the high school principal certifying the appointment. FEDERAL AID PROGRAMS All applicants applying for assistance under Federal Programs should make applications by July 31. Economic Opportunity Grants, Basic Opportunity Grants, National Direct Student Loans, Nursing Loans, and College Work-Study can be awarded only as long as the funds are available. A primary requirement for participation in these programs will be need. The college has selected the College Scholarship Service method of establishing need. The method requires a filing of the Parents' Confidential Statement with College Scholarship Service. Copies of this form may be obtained from the following places: 1 . College Scholarship Service, P. O. Box 1 76, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 2. A high school counselor in your area 3. The Director of Student Finance, Oakwood College, Huntsville, Alabama 35806. College Scholarship Service will submit to Oakwood College a Financial Need Analysis Sheet which will help to determine the need of the applicant. CONFERENCE MATCHING SCHOLARSHIPS The College in cooperation with the Regional Conferences, offers seventy-two scholarships of $300.00 each. These are granted on the basis of $100.00 from the local Conference, $100.00 from the College, and $100.00 from the Church where the student holds membership and will be applied during the Winter quarter. The church and conference may, if they choose, make as many two-way grants as they desire, but the College will match only one scholarship for each student, up to an established quota for each conference. No three-way scholarship will be matched unless it comes through the regional conference involved. BASIC OPPORTUNITY GRANTS Congress has voted the new Basic Opportunity Grants to new 162 Oakwood College full-time post secondary students. Under the BOG Program, stu- dents are entitled to grants up to $1400, minus their family's ex- pected contribution to the cost of their education. One may obtain applications from his high school, post office, library or post- secondary institution. ALUMNI MATCHING SCHOLARSHIPS The College Alumni Chapter offers four $100 scholarships. The Alumni gives $50 and the College matches with $50.

In order to meet these objectives as it renders its many services, the College has been blessed with gifts from a few philanthropic friends. These funds have augmented the General Conference subsidy and student tuition. As its circle of educational and vocational activities is widened, however, the spirit of liberality needs to be exercised by many more friends of the College. Some 1 of the immediate needs include the following: (1) Buildings and furnishings (2) Equipment— science laboratory, vocational, mu- sical instruments, and visual aids. (3) Library books, periodicals, and furnishings. Gifts to Oakwood College may bo in cash or by will and may consist of personal properly or real estate. Such gills may bo included in the deductible items which are allowed by the Internal Revenue Department in cal- culation of income lax m an amount up to 50 per cent of the donor's adjusted income.
